craig: I think the point of the restrictions to to only permit reception of certain programmes in Italy. This is done by only allowing the cards to be obtained there.

RAI - Craig, Briantist is correct. Formally, you have to register a Tivu receiver from a bona-fide address in Italy for the card to be recognised and activated. The Tivu website gives full details. Some UK retailers advertising on the net offer a way round this, but research and great caution are advisable before considering this. Many RAI programmes remain free-to-air, but many that are restricted to Tivu-only may well be programmes of choice... Of course, there remains the consolation of countless regional and shopping channels, many with abysmal picture quality :-)

RAI 1,2,3,N - Giovanni: These are still on 10.992GHz, but some programmes are encrypted and only available with a Tivu box registered
with a codice fiscale. See previous postings on this site for more detail.

Italian TV - Alan, see previous posts above and on

Some channels have changed frequency; some are now encrypted some of the time. If she has a codice fiscale, the best option is to get a new Tivu box which, once activated with the codice, will receive all available channels all of the time.

Hi everyone,
I don't know if someone can help. I would like to get Italian channels. I have been ringing around the only 2 possible suppliers here and they have told me 2 different things. One seems really complicated- he told me to get the box in Italy as I need the a codice fiscale and an Italian address, the other says he can fit it next week. I don't know what to believe!
